Cranberry and Orange Bread

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by SallyDe

A nice way to use up those Christmas (and Thanksgiving) cranberries that don't make it into your cranberry sauce. This is pretty low calorie as it contains no oil or butter, just applesauce. Orange and cranberry go well together. I read a recipe for a cranberry bread and decided to make it healthier and ended up almost completely changing the recipe, so I like to count it as my own.
